Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. This year’s offering will be brewed in both Europe and in Chicago. Look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 Solid barley wine. Malty and with notes of raisin and other sweet fruits. Nicely dry, bitter and fresh, instead of overly sweet.

@zebf 2014 - Golden, honeyed colour. Aroma is very fruity and malty - sweet. Initially it feels quite thick and lucious but it almost evaporates on the tongue. Dry finish with hints of bitter orange syrup.

One of the best barleywine style that I have ever tasted. Girlfriend, father in law and mother-in-law says that we can repeat this experience. Delicious.

Pour is cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, pine needles, caramel toffee, and dough. Flavor is similar but with more hop flavors coming through - citrus, orange peel, tropical fruits. A bit of spice lingers.

Pours true golden with a thick khaki head that sticks around. Nose involves super sweet cereal, spice, and some citrus. Really sweet, somewhat bitter. Thick body, soft carb, no alcohol burn at all, sticky, with lengthy bitter finish. Interesting brew, pushing a year old I believe. Haven’t had fresh, but the hops definitely faded from what I’m told, and the strange rice krispies malt thing dominates at this age. A decent brew, though I probably would’ve enjoyed it fresher.

650ml bottle from Bierkompass.de Aroma of spices, apricot, dry fruits and some honey. Nice blond look with medium white head. Taste is fruity and good, not so zippy, alcohol is hidden. Good sourness and bitterness. Fine imperial ipa/barley wine.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (from notes). Pours a hazy golden orange color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had caramel, with quite a bit of citrus, mango, tropical fruits, herbal notes, decent bitterness to the finish. This is a very hoppy barley wine that hides the abv between the sweetness and the hops.
